Not to say this is my only level-headed friend, but she certainly has withstood change, trial, and life's surprises with a genuine and humble heart.
She and I would meet for coffee having effortless conversations that were life giving, transparent and left me thankful for our friendship.
I appreciate our friendship whether we hang out consistently or not, and she is a blessing to all who know her.
I will admit she is physically far away, but I won't ever forget the maturity and the fun that she has brought to my life.
Her constant humble and peaceful attitude withstood things like mutual friendships breaking, financial struggles, and taking on more within her household than she would have expected.
She's showed the heart of God to me, and I cannot tell you the value of having someone with such a great example of beauty and courage. She had great insight to me when Ryan and I were dating, and even before then. She had a definite influence on me, especially since that stage of my life represented so much transition amongst all the decisions I was making for my life.
If any of you have experienced a friend like this, don't ever let them go and make sure that they know how amazing they are!! Like seriously, let that person know right now how amazing they are! Text, call, Facetime, have coffee with them! Do whatever you have to and thank them for the amazing attributes and the sensible personality they have had that has help keep you grounded through out your friendship.
